Wellness Elixir Recipe

Try this tasty, spiced beverage – an original recipe from Maggie Gori, Communications Chair for our Young Professionals Council.

This is a delicious drink using flavorful spices that are currently being researched for their anti-cancer and antioxidant properties. Almond milk is a great substitute for milk and can be a good source of calcium and Vitamin D in fortified brands. All ingredients may be found at your local grocery store


  • 2 cups of unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 teaspoons ground turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons local honey
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ceylon cinnamon

Optional Additions

  • ¼ teaspoon gelatinized maca
  • ¼ teaspoon grated ginger
  • Pinch of orange zest


  1. In a small saucepan at medium to medium-high heat, bring all ingredients (if using, add Ginger and Orange Zest here) except Turmeric and Maca to a simmer for 3 minutes, stirring until ingredients are consistent throughout
  2. Slowly add Turmeric, stirring until fully dissolved, about 1 minute
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, add Maca, and stir for 1-2 minutes (skip this step if not using Maca)
  4. Strain into a mug and enjoy!
